Civil Rights Dollar in 2014|
December 19, 2013
A silver dollar commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 will be put on sale in January by the U.S. Mint.
The obverse depicts three people holding hands at a civil rights march. It was designed by U.S. Mint contract artist Justin Kunz and executed by Mint Sculptor-Engraver Phebe Hemphill.
On the reverse are three flames intertwined, which symbolize freedom of education, freedom to vote and the freedom to control one’s own destiny. It was designed by U.S. Mint Artistic Infusion Program artist Donna Weaver and sculpted by U.S. Mint Sculptor-Engraver Jim Licaretz.
Maximum mintage is 350,000 proof and uncirculated coins combined. Surcharge income from sales will go to the United Negro College Fund.
